When you were little, did you ever make a wish and then blow on the dandelion to see if your wish would come true? Perhaps you looked up at the night sky and made a wish on the first star you saw or before blowing out the candles on your birthday cake, hoped for something. We have all made wishes at some time or another. Some of us spend our whole lives wishing.
Tossing a coin into a fountain or breaking the wishbone of a cooked turkey may be fun to do, but I happen to think that wishes are good things and that they all can come true, wish a little help. That's the important part - the little help. Sometimes we help ourselves fulfill our dreams and our hopes - you might actually think of them as goals. Sometimes we can help others with their wishes like when you donate to charities.
Now this might be a good time to talk about the Make-A-Wish Foundation which last year got a lot of publicity when Batkid came to San Francisco. They are indeed a good organization and you can easily find out about them HERE, but that isn't what I am writing about today. I'm really talking about dreams we ALL have. We wish and then sit back doing nothing more sometimes. What we need to do is wish and then make that wish a reality.
Difficult? Well yes. Sometimes it is difficult. Life isn't always easy, but anything really worth having is worth working for! So, don't give up on that wish. Make it come true!
